Forum: feature_films Subject: What about music rights in these films?

Let's take an example and there are a LOT of others here.

This has music that is in the BMI catalog:

BMI Work #1108085 "Old Home Ranch" by Don Swander.

Like I said, there seems to be a lot of copyrighted music in a lot of these films.

unless the music was copyrighted separately from the film it enters public domain along with the film.

That's the case in some of these films. McLintock! is widely held to be public domain, but my investigation turned up these pesky renewed copyrights on songs contained in it.

Public domain or not?

i think is still grey area because often times you cant be sure its the exact same recording or just an alternate recording of a song who's rights expired into PD/ so unless you can be sure...
